Disney’s New Robot Can Play Catch With Humans



Disney is developing a new robot that can interact with visitors at its theme parks.

The currently-unnamed, eerily humanlike robot can juggle, follow balls in the air with its eyes, and catch balls that’s thrown at it.

It even reacts with a shrug, a shake of its head, or a look around for the ball, when it misses a catch.

With the use of an external camera system and an algorithm, the robot predicts where and when the ball would fall.

The robot also tosses the ball back to the person who threw it.

Currently, it’s still in its initial stages of development, but it might be in a Disney park before you know it.
